Anthony has been a member of MPI for 11 years, PCMA for 6 years, ASAE for 2 years. He has held positions on the board of directors in the Chicago Area Chapter and is a past president of the Potomac Chapter of MPI. He is the current MPI Global Chair of the DE&I Committee. In 2018, he created a task force that eventually formed into a committee that focuses on implementing standard practices on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Spearheading the effort to add an additional Board Director overseeing DE&I, the committee took flight, adding educational programming, advocacy work, and marketing efforts resulting in DE&I becoming a permanent entity in the MPI Potomac Board of Directors. The Potomac Chapter was recognized by MPI for these efforts with the 2019-2020 RISE Award for Industry Advocacy.
Anthony is a founding member of the Diverse Community and Neighborhood Engagement committee at Choose Chicago and has been a panelist on several webinars and podcasts including The Room Block with Jen Salerno and MPI Potomac Cast: Voices of the Members of MPI Potomac. Anthony is an out and proud member of the hospitality industry, living in Chicago with his Partner and rescue pup, Phoebe. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Communications from Ball State University and a Master’s in Education from DePaul University. He is excited to join the LGBT MPA board of directors to continue the fight for inclusivity for all!
